AADL brings you Revolution in the Streets

Dance Dance Revolution, that is! AADL will be hosting a DDR tournament as part of this Sunday's Dancing in the Streets event in Downtown Ann Arbor. We'll be out there from 1:45-7:00 as part of the Ann Arbor Council for Traditional Music and Dance's yearly event, which this year will feature The Dodworth Saxhorn Band, Phil Ogilvie's Rhythm Kings, Saline's Fiddlers Restrung, the UM Tango Club, Swing Ann Arbor, and much more! Read more for full details about the tournament and prizes...

The AADL DDR tent will be on Washington Street just east of Main, and we'll have qualifying slots available for both beginning and advanced players throughout the day, and we'll then invite back our top scorers (measured by number of perfects) in both the beginner/light and the standard/heavy bracket for head-to-head finals starting at 6:00 PM. First through Fourth place in each bracket will take home Target giftcards worth up to $40, courtesy of Pfizer. So, come give your best qualifying dance and stick around for the finals, and you could win big. See you there, and let us know that you saw this post on aadl.org for a bonus prize!

I would also like to say, this topic's title sounded a lot cooler than the topic actually was. I mean, DDR in the street in a tent is awesome, don't get me wrong, but I was thinking Eli was actually proposing overthrowing the library administration to allow us to hold tournaments for 'M' rated games. You know, the good old-fashioned kind of revolution.

Either that, or it was something about the Wii and he forgot the name change. I didn't think that was very likely, though.

I wish I could have come but sorry I was working. Show it to me next round or e-mail/IM me.


I just read a tasteless joke that made me think of Joe Smolarski, so in his honor I shall tell it.

A man ran over a woman with his car, who is at fault?

The man. What was he doing driving in the kitchen?

that does remind of joe and his tasteless jokes


That was pretty fun. I liked it because there we're only like...8 or 9 people that we're really good so we got to show off to a large crowd the whole time.

nobody has posted in SO LOOOONG. yay next tourney finally next weekened
I AM GOSU I WILL PWN U I AM L33T!!![gtlogo:SDK]


I think team double dash needs to be changed because 1 win and 1 8th gets u in. Also i think there should be 3 qualifying matches in team mele because 1 bad match and ur out, also there wont be 20 way ties
doomblaze here cuz im 2 lazy 2 swich into my account. if its really a CLAN battle, shouldnt we make it so u have 2 use different people for each event, so your whole CLAN we be in it (makes sense right?) of course if some of your clan members arent there ud use poeple over again 2 fill in the slots, (posted by monkeyman)- because currently if u have a clan with 2 amazing players and the others can't tell one end of a controller from another u still would win. [gtlogo:sdk]


It also looks like your TOO lazy TO type the word "TO"!
Please make it easier on my eyes and type correctly, this isn't a chat room, it's a forum. One must practice typing well TO get good at it.

I agree monkey and doomblaze, team kart doesnt need changed me and bro got 7th in first race and 1 st in the next proving we had the skill to win and lack of luck to get 7th and than we easily won our next 2 for the win. The thing is that in team kart there are only 2 final races maybe make it a longer elminaiton like bottom 2 out or something. Also team melee should be double elminiation i thnk that might happen by round 3.
also maybe another qual in single kart or extended mariokart


if its that hard 2 see 2 then u should c a doctor, or stop playing video games,
or just stop reading my posts bcuz they probably dont mean anything 2 u, or
concern u... if time was money, wouldnt immortal people have infinate wealth?

if u want 2 read sofisticated posts then go 2 another blog this 1 has 2 many gamers n00b lol
[gtlogo:sdk]


You don't need to be sophisticated (you spelled it wrong) to have good grammar, you need an education. Your in Jr. High, right? You should use the skills you have learned in 1st grade like spelling. As I said before, this isn't a chat room, your only making yourself look worse.

EBD, you don't need to argue with him... Just crush him on Saturday to make your point:)


i am sad that i do not get to participate in the crushing of monkeyman in melee :(


But you'll be here on Saturday, right???


good luck "crushing me" on sunday u are 40th and im 11th. so stfu i talk however i want 2 n00b[gtlogo:sdk]


LOLZ pickwick, i can c u crushing me, but not ebd. (in melee, anyway) if u think u can, ebd, then come 2 the friday 1, and well c whos better ^_^ i dont c u beating monkeyman either... do u? (one melee win ftl) in double dash u cud prob beat me but in my opinion theres more luck involved there. Y do u comment on an 8th graders grammer in a gaming blog? that has nothing 2 do with video games, and doesnt prove squat except that u can attempt 2 insult him using Sophisticatedness. and Nishant, can u come on friday? or at all? cuz i wanna c if yer as good as u think u r... hahaha u suk ryan ur only 11th, ebd is 40th, that so much higher than u, of course he can beat u (not really tho) and pickwick, i dunno if ur helping him by saying he can crush monkeyman.
I AM GOSU I WILL PWN most of u I AM L33T
[gtlogo:SDK]


i was even with pickwick i think last time we played (like february x_x)


It's not a gaming blog its a library blog. Grammar is required, we just skip over your comments normally because they are so pointless.


then y did u just reply if u dont read them lol, btw the blog is part of the aadl-gt - gaming tounament what now n00b
[gtlogo:sdk]


Ryan u do realize if they dont read our comments saying that was pointless lol.
so i should come over at 5:00 or wut? i dont know y its ittalic and i dont care
I AM GOSU I WILL PWN U I AM L33T
SUPA NO0B!!!

Close your HTML tags, guys.

Actually, the GT designation comes from the words Grand Touring, which was originally used to designate a class of cars in the 24 Hour races at Le Mans. It was used in Season 1 because we only did Mario Kart Double Dash, a racing game. No reference to Gaming Tournaments at all.
Sorry.

Nishant: We were about even, 'tis true... It is because of your training that I have learned to hate and fear the chain-throw. Will you still be playing as Peach, or have you left her forever for the greater speed, skill, and quality that are offered by Fox?
Also, what time will you get there? I'm planning to show up at 11:00 so that MiniBlin and I can duel; would you be able to join us, or would the four-hour drive to Chicago render that impossible?


myabe originally it was that but now i belive that gaming tournament is corect btw what time is the friday tournament, Arjan u are coming at 5 but u need a ride
[gtlogo:sdk]


i might come

probably won't though

I've sped up my peach quite a bit using fox trots with a combination of wavedashes (sprint-slides o beleive they were called) and have added wavelanding to my game

I've also got to play against an amazing payer (singular =P): Francisco. His fox is AMAZING

it will own yours... =P


Quite probably; he's 5-0 against me. On the other hand, he's played Falco every single time...
Wavelanding is useful, but how do you do the fox trot (in the context of the game, of course)?


fox trot is a technique that is most effective with fox (hence the name). Some character's dash animation is faster than just running, so you dash dash dash and you should go faster

You can then dash, wavedash, dash, wavedash


Monkeyman, what's wrong with you, "stfu"? Have you stooped so low that you use vulgar phrases on this blog. Also I never challenged you to a game, I challenged you to your grammar. I believe that Duck had already made a point that this is a Library Blog and encourages good grammar. So by now, we both know that your grammar sucks.
What I am going to do is skip right over your unimportant posts that could even make Sergei Korsakoff one of his own experiments. If your posts were in a textbook sent to Columbine, Eric and Dylan would be too retarded to know how to hold a gun! If Charles Manson read your posts, he'd decline his parole for 2007 and ask, "Why didn't you just give me the chair in 1969?" If Osama read your posts, he'd try to turn himself in and expect $25 million as a reward. (And for those who love politics...) If George Bush read your posts, he'd become smart enough to know that he is the most hated president to ever run this country.
Your post isn't flying anymore. No, your post has already crashed and burned. Your post is struggling to get up while this library is keepind it's foot pressed upon it's neck, with me sitting near with a camera, waiting until it eventually stops moving and dies!
There, I'm done. Good luck passing English.

ON a different note, Duck, I need to know what teams we have planned Round 2. Like if you and I are on a team or Muffincat and I are on a team. I need to know so I pre-register fully.

P.S. I apologize if any of you were offended by my comments on Russian Psychologists, Columbine, Terrorists, Bush, and "The Family". I tend to make small comments to one's grammar but when they insult me, that irritates me.
P.P.S. (I hope all of you have enjoyed reading this post as much as I had typing it...*laughs*)


First off I have an A in english, second i don't care how u want me 2 type beccuz u are but an anoying nerdy high schooler who always looses arguments to "little kids". ill talk however i want 2 and nothin u gonna say will change that, so another argument lost...
oh and btw i have a life and dont say u do becuz u make posts at 12:06 am no one who does that has a life
[gtlogo:sdk]


MAN! Give it a rest, guys! Let me officially say that I don't care what kind of grammar or spelling or chatspeak you throw out here... it's just a blog, and you make the impression that you want to make. However, I will say that when you're trying to convince me of something that you think we should change about the tournaments, impressions count.

At any rate, I do tell other librarians that the GT stands for Gaming Tournaments, but we chose it because of the racing connotations and such. And I do consider aadl.org/aadlgt a gaming blog at a library... so you're both right. Regardless, it's a dumb thing to be having an argument about, when we could be arguing about how much the PS3 will suck and why.

/ducks and runs


yea, i agree that ryan saying stfu was a stupid thing 2 do, but the rest of your post was pointless, and retarded (unless u meant those thing about yerself) ebd... and the PS3 will suck becuz it costs 2 much (i dun care if its a blue ray player), as do the games. the Wii will pwn becuz its nintendo

Hey, I won this!
